place a standard homeowners' policy should cover storm damage to your home or land but there is one important exception. water damage. while they will cover leaks from the rain above, home insurance policies don't coverage water from damage from below. even if the water comes from a rain-swollen creek. for that you will need flood insurance. but he says if you don't already have it, it's too late. flood insurance has a 30-day waiting period to kick in. >> even if you bought it today, it just isn't available for you. >> even using the word "flood" could get you denied when you try file a claim so julie says choose your words carefully. and to cover storm damage to your car you have to have a comprehensive car insurance policy and if you have a problem or question, call our hotline 1-888-5-helps-u and volunteers are there right now to help you out. all right. lawrence, my in-laws flew into
